Publisher Description

Introduction Preceptorship has been used to counter the role uncertainty experienced by many new nurses (Morton-Cooper and Palmer 1993, Bowles 1995, Clark et al 1997, Allen 1999). It is now a requirement of the employment contract in the National Health Service (NHS) (Department of Health 2003). As there is evidence that some occupational therapists have unmet expectations in their post-qualifying year (Rugg 1996, 1999, Sutton and Griffin 2000, Ohman et al 2002), the requirement to implement preceptorship within the profession offered an opportunity to assess whether it eased the transitional experience. Occupational therapists from several organisations designed the preceptorship programme under evaluation (Morley 2007a).
